Years after the "American Pie" gang appeared, and several sequels later, virtually all of the original cast is back in a comedy that's pretty successful in recapturing the first film's spirit. It's even more impressive given the characters' advances in life ... particularly Jim (Jason Biggs), who's adjusting to parenthood with wife Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) and debating what to do about a younger woman's apparent advances.
Seann William Scott comes close to stealing the show in his return as Stifler; Chris Klein, Mena Suvari, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid, Eddie Kaye Thomas and even Eugene Levy (as Jim's dad again) also are back on board. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by writer-directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (R and unrated versions: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
